are not only picturesque oasis for its users, but also serves to create a suitable microclimate for plants. When building a conservatory is necessary to take into account material structures, cladding, shading, ventilation and heating. However, it is also necessary to take into account external factors that affect performance significantly gardens.
Climate region where the winter garden located
Climate experts distinguish the area to cool slightly warm and hot. They differ in the number of hot, cold or freezing days, average temperatures and the number of clear and overcast days. All of these factors significantly affect the temperature fluctuations outside the conservatory, which has a significant impact on the development and growth of cultivated plants. Climatic conditions, we have to adjust ventilation, heating and shielding.
Orientation to the cardinal
Also, a certain orientation gardens cardinal is a significant factor. Conservatory can focus on any of the cardinal points, but it is then necessary to respect the specifics associated with a given orientation.
Garden facing east
On the building facing east sun shines especially during the morning and partly noon. Later on they are protected from the high heat of the building. In these conservatories us there is no excess heat from solar radiation due to its low intensity.
Winter gardens facing south
South-facing conservatories are abundant year-round heated by sunlight. They must therefore be protected with a quality shading and ventilation space. It is advisable to use the vertical surfaces of the casing. They capture the sun's rays less than sloping surfaces. It is good to consider appropriate roofing, south-facing garden opaque roofing. The roof would also should have a sufficiently large overlap.
Gardens facing north
Winter gardens facing north depict especially the first summer and last winter rays, then most of the day tend to be overshadowed by the building, so no need for high investments in shielding. It is desirable to focus on the appropriate space heating. From an architectural point of view, an appropriate choice of the high and slightly sloping roofs that better disperse sunshine and sufficiently capture solar radiation to the west and east.
Winter Garden to the west
West facing garden heated afternoon and evening sun. Morning on the west side are cold.
Landscape designers recommend as the ideal orientation of the conservatory on the southwest and southeast, where appropriate in combination with ventilation, heating and shielding will be in the area of the winter garden plants thrive. Of course, it also depends on the selection of appropriate plants, and especially the preferences and expectations of users conservatories.
